**Before I get to my post - I just want to take the time to express how deeply sad I am about the events that took place last Fri 12-14-12 at Sandy Hook Elementary in CT - my deepest thoughts and prayers are with the children families that were taken from the world WAY too soon - and the heros that played a part in trying to shield those children from harm. May you all Rest In Peace!**
Hi all!! We are a week away from celebrating Christmas! Can you believe it!! I am not done with shopping either - but luckily I won't be seeing some of my family right at Christmas - so I still have a little time to buy what is left on my list :) Today, I wanted to share with you a Christmas card I made using my beloved Lawn Fawn stamps :) If you follow me regularly - you know how much I adore all things Lawn Fawn - and that I feel my stamp collection wouldn't be the same without Lawn Fawn in it.
I love the set Sweet Christmas. How fun are these images to create your own ginger bread house with the ginger bread men and woman :)
I started with a piece of white card stock slightly smaller than a A2 size card. I have this peppermint background stamp that just screams to be embossed!! I stamped out two of the Christmas Trees in a chevron patterned paper. I then stamped/embossed the gingerbread in white onto kraft card stock and 'fussy' them and then added a bit of color with some of my Memento Markers. I popped all of those pieces on my white background piece with dimensionals. For some fun - I stamped out the sentiment in black, green and red for something different instead of straight black onto a die cut piece using one of my Sizzix Framelits from Stampin' Up. To finish up the card - I added some red grosgrain ribbon with green stitching to "tie" everything together - and mounted my panel onto a piece of kraft card stock.
I am not sure if I will get to post another project for all of you before Christmas - so from me to all of you Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!
